Communism and totalitarianism are ideologies that stand separate in their economics and political senses. Some might link the two together, but they are different in relatively every aspect. In totalitarianism, which term means total control, the society is having less power, while the concentration of power is on the state. On the other hand, the term communism refers to less power. This is a system whereby society is powerful, and they have a say in the affairs of the state.

Totalitarianism can be said to be synonymous to the term monarchism or authoritarianism where the society’s opinions or thoughts are not reckoned with at all unlike the communism where the people in the society make the major decisions. Totalitarianism system of government is right to wind, while the communism system of government is left-wing. In communism, the people are eligible to handle resources and can also be in ownership of properties while totalitarianism does not allow for people to handle resources, as the state is in charge of everything.

Communism and Totalitarianism are both types of dictatorships. Communism is seen as an ideology. There are no states, and there are no classes. With Totalitarianism, there is a state, and the state controls everything. With communism, society has all of the power. As the name suggests, Totalitarianism means total control.

Communism and Totalitarianism are both types of dictatorships. Communism is seen as an ideology.
Due to the state having all of the control, the individuals of the state have no place in helping with decisions. On the contrary, with communism, there is no control, and as a community, decisions are made. The community in communism also helps with gaining resources, while resources in Totalitarianism are gained from the state.
